This FAQ page details common questions with our answers. If these do not address your needs, contact us at trbookservices@gmail.com.

Q. How has COVID 19 affected you?

A. T&R Independent Books is an Internet based business and is therefore not impacted as Brick & Mortar bookstores. Our books are available here 24/7 and through Amazon.com. We provide links to the pages where you can safely purchase your copy of any of our books.

Q. Our Bookstore is Open. What does that mean for customers, clients, etc.?

A. T&R Independent Bookstore is our online method of marketing our books, which means we are the primary and best seller of books by R. Frederick and Tess Riddle. As such all our books are marked down from retail. At the same time, we continue to provide links to our product’s Amazon.com pages.

The Bookstore is designed to provide our customers with an easy opportunity to see all our books in one place and to have the opportunity to buy one or more. We also have plans to offer our books in special combinations. Watch our site for more information.

Q. What does Services do?

A. Our Services department is geared to help authors. I has three services that we proudly offer:

Christian Authors Business Institute (CABI) which provides an Authors Basic Training Course that is six months long and provides you with the knowledge and tools to level the field for you. In this course, you learn:

  • That you are a businessperson
  • How to set up your business
  • Basics on writing
  • Publishing
  • Marketing

As with our books, the course is discounted. Valued at $700 or more, it sells for $399 or six payments of $66.99. It is the exclusive property of T&R Independent Books and Christian Authors Business Institute.

Ministry Services, which offers Pastors, Evangelists, and Missionaries help in writing and publishing their own book.

Literary Consultant, which helps and guides those who don’t want a coach, but want to write and publish. This entails an evaluation fee of $75 so that we can evaluate the project. If approved, the basic cost is $125, but for books exceeding 50,000 words the price is based on word count (.005 per word)

Q. I am a pastor and interested in writing my own book. What do I need to do?

A. Go to our Services page and click on Ministry Services. Follow instructions and contact us.

Q. Can I buy your book in a bookstore?

A. Once our books are published, we place them in our bookstore. Local bookstores have their own criteria and methods of accepting books. We are of course interested in placing our books in local bookstores, but if you don’t see it, ask the bookstore if they can order it. However, as mentioned, we sell our books in our store at discounted prices. It is doubtful that a brick & mortar store could match us.
